March in Happy Feet

We had a fantastic time during March celebrating Mothers Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. 

Wishing all our families a very Happy Easter. 




February in Happy Feet

The Ladybird Room were fascinated with all things ‘Mini-Beasts’ this month after finding lots of them around the running track in Tarmon. We had great fun learning all about the variety of Mini-beasts and enjoyed reading stories with books that we got from Castlerea Library. They researched a variety of mini-beasts and went on a mini-beast hunt around the garden in Tarmon National School to see could we find any – we were very lucky and found lots of them. We tasted local Roscommon honey and found some magic chocolate Ladybirds aswell. 

The Rainbow Room Throughout the month of February the children in The Rainbow Room have been exploring all aspects of ‘Spring’. The lifecycle of a Butterfly sparked a lot of curiosity amongst the boys and girls. They also loved getting their hands dirty planting some seeds which we have been eagerly watching each day as they begin to sprout. 

The Butterfly Room were learning all about ‘Love’.  The children were involved in a number of activities including baking, sensory play and much more. The children loved bringing home a cupcake and love box to their families for Valentine’s day. The children got messy in our ‘love is in the air’ sensory table where they had the opportunity to pour, stir and explore. The children made some amazing love potions. 

A very busy and fun February in Happy Feet.


Lizzie The Ladybird

Our afterschool students have been extremely busy with their latest project – Lizzie The Ladybird. Lizzie is made from 100% recyclable lids from a variety of products. They, along with some local Castlerea businesses have collected lids over the last few months and our project was completed very recently. The children in our afterschool club from junior infants right up to our 6th class students played a part in completing this master piece. They decided to do a Ladybird as a nod to our wonderful Ladybird Class in Tarmon who will soon be in our afterschool club. The masterpiece is on display in the school hall in Tarmon National School. 



January in Happy Feet

The Rainbow room went ‘Under the Sea’ in January and had great fun exploring all the animals that live under the sea, had lots of sensory play and created lovey under the sea crafts. 

The Butterfly room were curious about ‘Wild Animals’ and enjoyed getting to know all about the different types of wild animals. They created some great crafts and even joined the wild animal party for the day. 

The Ladybird room went ‘Dino’ crazy and enjoyed exploring all the different types of dinosaurs. The particularly enjoyed creating a mess with their ‘Dino Swamp’
